Just to throw in my two cents:
- I am reading the GK and BA codecies right now and I find nothing rivalling the Eldar or Necron technology.
- While the Eldar as a race have many tools and skills (preserved from the Fall), I doubt they had good chances at thwarting the Emperor’s webway project in the long run.
-- Ulthwé may have foreseen it all but may have not possessed the needed tools
-- Ulthwé may not even have had the tools to contact other Craftworlds to borrow such tools etc.
-- Especially so soon after the Fall as at the time of HH, Eldar may not have reinvented much of their capabilities. Paths, psychic runes and spirit stones were relatively new back then, how do we know if the Eldar had learned to use Black Holes in a Box with the new Chaos god around?
- The Emperor has access to the knowledge of ancient human shamans much in the same way as Exarchs and Farseers do. He has the knowledge and skills bargained from Chaos. He is the most powerful mortal psyker in the galaxy, for sure, and even if His inheritaged knowledge comes from only mammals, He has it. It is IMO a weird thought to regard Him as not skilled..
Ps. Comparing game effects and raw power between Eldar and other psykers is unfair, IMHO. Eldar can never use their full potential in fear of Slaanesh and that affects the psychic effects they produce. I guess buffs are easier for them to produce than DPS? I'd say Eldar seers are considerably more powerful than their game stats would suggest.
